This workshop was a lovely way to spend a chilly Melbourne Sunday morning at Gas Works. Frosa, the teacher was very knowledgeable, helpful and explained the processes clearly. Now I've got to wait a couple of weeks before I can test the four candles I made today. Thank you.

Everything was provided and the venue was good.

We had an excellent time with my friend! The teacher was knowledgeable, and happy to help when we had questions. I would expect more attention from the teacher to check if we are doing everything right, so not just when we ask the questions.

The location was a little difficult to find. But the studio was quite large and spacious.

We had so much fun with my friend choosing the fragrances and making the candles.

I would recommend this class.

Olga Plyatsko Dec 2020

Frosa's Candle Making Workshop was an absolute delight to attend. It was so satisfying to learn the beautiful art (and science) of how to make your very own candles, in such an interactive and creative space.

Krosa was always available to help answer any questions and her passion to share her knowledge with others is a true gift.

Thank you for such a wonderful experience, would highly recommend this workshop!

I think it was good value for money, especially given that we go to take home several candles and tealights that we’d made during the class. I was surprised by how well mine turned out!

I would have appreciated a slightly longer/more in-depth introduction to the chemistry and theoretical background before we started making (e.g. benefits of soy wax over other kinds, specific implications of using pure soy wax), but understandably we also needed enough time for actually making our candles.

Something I would have found helpful is a whiteboard or similar containing large print version of the key info we needed to keep referring back to during the class (the steps in making a candle starting with measuring the diameter of the jar; the amounts in grams of wax to fragrance for different candle sizes).

Melanie Meens Nov 2019

Great fun, highly organised & very informative. Frosa was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble for her and no question to silly. I would definitely recommend!
